Part of the World Perspectives Strand


Sally Hawkins is at her best is this engaging and gently moving period drama, depicting the real-life story of Maud Lewis, a talented painter who refused to be hindered by her severe arthritis and went on to become one of Canada’s best-known folk artists. Her co-star Ethan Hawke is also impressive in the initially unsympathetic role of the man who, to everyone’s surprise in their remote nova Scotia community, hires Maud as his housekeeper, with the pair starting the most unlikely of romances.
